Parra hasn't played the past two days due to a bruised right calf, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

It was surprising to see Parra miss two consecutive games given how well he's been hitting as of late, but this injury explains it. The Rockies don't expect him to hit the disabled list, but he should be considered day-to-day for the time being. Carlos Gonzalez will continue to pick up starts in right field until Parra is back in action.

Parra is out of the lineup Sunday against the Pirates.

EDGE Analysis

Parra was passed over for the start Saturday as well, but over his last five games he has gone 12-for-19 at the plate with six RBI. Even when he's swinging a hot bat, there simply isn't enough outfield reps to go around since the return of Ian Desmond for Parra to be an every day starter. He'll continue to rotate with Desmond and Carlos Gonzalez at the corner outfield spots for the foreseeable future.

Parra is out of the lineup for Saturday's game against the Pirates.

EDGE Analysis

Ian Desmon will take Parra's post in left field Saturday and Mark Reynolds will rejoin the lineup at first base. Saturday marks Parra's first day off since the All-Star break, and he has been red-hot since the start of the second half with a .538 average and a 1.341 OPS over 26 at-bats. Look for Parra to return to the lineup for Sunday's series finale against Pittsburgh.

Parra went 4-for-5 with two runs during Wednesday's win over San Diego.

EDGE Analysis

Parra is scorching hot since returning from the disabled list with seven multi-hit showings, two homers, 12 RBI and 12 runs through nine games. Six of those nine contests have been at Coors Field, but discrediting Parra's fantasy value based on his home venue is ill-advised. He sports an elite .364/.387/.549 slash line -- .277/.304/.410 on the road -- for the campaign, after all. However, considering his home-road splits, if the luxury exists to only start Parra at Coors, that's a solid option.

Parra had a perfect day at the plate against San Diego on Tuesday, going 3-for-3 with a double, two walks, an RBI and three runs.

EDGE Analysis

He's been absolutely raking in his eight games since returning from a quad injury, going a silly 16-for-31 (.516) with a pair of homers, four doubles, 12 RBI and 10 runs. This is nothing new for him -- Parra actually hit over. 500 for a two-week stretch immediately preceding his DL stint. After a disappointing first season in Colorado, he's really started taking advantage of the friendly confines of Coors Field.

Parra went 2-for-4 with a home run, three RBI and two runs during Sunday's victory over the Mets.

EDGE Analysis

The 30-year-old has been playing well since coming off the DL (quadriceps) on July 7, and filled in nicely for Carlos Gonzalez on Sunday. He has hit 11-for-24 with four extra-base hits and 10 RBI during the span, and continues to be a hot bat in the lineup for manager Bud Black.

Parra will start in right field and bat sixth Sunday against the Mets, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Though Ian Desmond (calf) is back in the lineup in his first game off the 10-day disabled list, Parra will stick in the starting nine at the expense of Carlos Gonzalez, who receives the day off. Gonzalez has a longer track record of star-level production on his side, but since he's struggled to find his form at the plate this season, there's reason to believe Parra may continue to find his way into the lineup. Parra has recorded nine hits and seven RBI in 20 at-bats since returning from a DL stint of his own and maintains a stellar .333/.356/.494 line over 180 plate appearances on the season.

Parra went 3-for-5 with two RBI and three runs during Sunday's win over the White Sox.

EDGE Analysis

Parra is now 7-for-13 with five RBI and four runs through three games since returning from the disabled list. Playing home games at Coors Field is a tremendous boost, and Parra owns modest five-category upside. He should see enough at-bats going forward to remain a serviceable fantasy asset in deeper settings, and Parra currently has more value with Ian Desmond (calf) and David Dahl (ribs) both on the disabled list.

Parra went 3-for-5 with a double, an RBI and a run during Friday's win over the White Sox.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran outfielder projects to receive semi-regular at-bats going forward with Ian Desmond (calf) and David Dahl (ribs) both on the disabled list. Parra missed approximately a month of action with the quadriceps injury, but he's been solid when healthy this season and sports a .327/.356/.490 slash line through 163 plate appearances.

Parra (quadriceps) was reinstated from the 10-day disabled list Friday, Jenny Cavnar of Root Sports Rocky Mountain reports.

EDGE Analysis

Parra ultimately missed a month of action due to the quad strain suffered in early June. He'll re-enter the lineup immediately upon activation, batting fifth and playing left field. The defensive whiz could push for playing time given how much Carlos Gonzalez has struggles this season, although Raimel Tapia's success could also create a frustrating outfield rotation that limits the playing time for all three. In a corresponding move, Mike Tauchman was sent back to the minors.
